Full report: 90 people forced to leave jobs at Honda

One of the region's biggest employers has confirmed it will be making compulsory redundancies. Honda, which is based in Swindon, announced 800 jobs would have to go back in January and has been consulting with employees since then.

The Union Unite says most of the workers have opted to take voluntary redundancy, with around 90 people forced to leave their jobs. Local businesses are worried the cuts will still have a huge impact on the area. Tanya Mercer reports.
